Trust in the LORD with all your HEART. Lean not unto your own understanding, but acknowledge him in all thy ways and he will direct your path.

Thank goodness I am able to download pics internally on my computer, sooooo.....I thought I would bring you pics of some darling Vintage Canned Ham Trailers!  I have had a love for these little darlings for a while and I have came upon an opportunity to buy one.   So this posting is a tribute to all those sweet vintage campers!


This style is almost identical to the one I may purchase.  About the same condition, but not the color.  A little rough around the edges, but still possesses  the charm.  The one I am looking at is mostly gutted inside.  I don't have a problem with that!


You can be so creative with these little beauties......Isn't this the sweetest idea ever?


Again, this style is similar to the one I am looking door and one window on the same side


They're so many beautiful vintage campers out there..........go to pinterest and you will be in glamping heaven!!

Here is a sneak preview of the little camper..........Should I or shouldn't I??  She is a little rough but has potential!   I will let you know............Blessings and have a wonderful week~~~Roxie

                                              Take the DESIGN STYLE Quiz!!

Take the HOMEGOODS STYLESCOPE  and find out your unique Stylescope personality and get tips to bring it to life in your home!  It's FUN!

                                            My results are  "FARMHOUSE GLAM"   with a touch of BOHO

FARMHOUSE GLAM is the delicate, exquisite balance between beautiful femininity and rustic nonchalance.  She's all about the discovery of  the unexpected, sparkle amidst the less polished.  She wears high heels and a denim jacket, a string of pearls and bare feet(?).  And her home feels as special as it does comfortable.
FARMHOUSE GLAM is very approachable elegance, layering texture rather than color to create a look that is modern and rustic.  Chandeliers above picnic tables, ornate candlesticks along weathered pieces.  Mix and match upholstered chairs, metal or wire, stools or benches around your dining or kitchen tables.

I feel this does describe what I like except I do want a little touch of soft color around my house in some rooms.  I guess thats where some BOHO comes in.  I do like a little URBAN too. (like vintage industrial accents)
Go ahead and take the test~~~~~It's FUN!
(I have not been asked or paid to post this about "Homegoods".  This is open to all who join their blog)
Please let me know when you COMMENT back, what STYLE  you are!!!  This will be interesting and fun!

Have a WONDERFUL and BLESSED week, my friends~~~~~Roxie

This is a picture of my PINK VINTAGE WICKER BABY BASSINET potted with fern and a mix of flowers.
I have been setting up vignettes all week for a tea at my church and used my VINTAGE BABY BASSINET for one of the displays.
When I found this at a thrift store some months ago, I couldn't believe the excellent shape this was in.  It is much prettier in person, for the bassinet is QUITE LARGE, has a bonnet frame on it, and a sweet handle to move it around with ease.  ORIGINAL COLOR is outstanding!
It sits in my office/craft room and I store layers of VINTAGE fabrics in it.  It has become a SWEET FAVORITE FIND of mine with multi uses!  I LOVE it!  And the best thing is...........I paid a whopping $20 for it!  It's a KEEPER!

This is what it looks like by itself.  Not that I'm into vintage baby things, but this was too beautiful!  The best part, it has been so useful in many ways!  Do you have a find that has turned out to be a favorite or useful in ways you didn't expect?  I'd LOVE to hear about it!
Have a wonderful and BLESSED week!   From one sweetie to another~~~Roxie

Today is May 11, 2013.  This is a "special day" for my family.  It is my Mothers Birthday!!  She wouldn't want me to say this but she is 80 years young today.  Yes, she is 80! (and she has never had a touch up of anything!!) This picture is less than 3 yrs old and it deplicts her very well.  She enjoys life and loves to have good, clean fun!  She is from a family of 11 children.....1 of 8 girls.  It's always a HOOT when she gets together with her sisters!

My Mother and I are headed to a Ladies Tea (2 yrs ago) at my church.  We had a wonderful time!  This is a very memorable time for me with my Mom.

                                                     My son Corey with his Grandmother

                                                               Corey with  "Mom"

                                    Happy Birthday Mom and Happy Mothers Day too!
                                                                  We LOVE you!

And for those who do not have their precious Mothers today, I wish you wonderful and cherished memories~~~God Bless~~~~~~Roxie

I found a Vintage wrought iron table last year with no glass top at a yard sale.  I thought its design was very interesting.  Somewhat of a contemporary-industrial-modern look?  It was BRIGHT Yellow!  (had to paint that)
 Then I found just a few months ago, an antique barn door with a latch.  VERY sturdy, with  wide tongue and groove and sweet white paint in its natural state.

Now, I know what some of you are, it's really not practical for children but for an enclosed area, like a porch or sun room, it looks soooo FARMHOUSE SWEET!!

    All this table needs is "sweet" chairs to go with it!   Hubby did a wonderful job putting it together.  I have had a lot of compliments on it.  It is  "UNIQUE ORIGINAL"
I am going to sell it if anyone is interested!  Be BLESSED and have a WONDERFUL weekend!   Roxie

Today is the NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER.  I believe this year is more URGENT to pray for our nation than ever before.  I know, some will not agree, but our NATION is in trouble.  Great trouble.
     We can go back to the sixties and see how as a nation, as a people, things have steadily worsened in many different areas for us.  Not all areas, but many.
   GOD, HEAR my Prayer!  FORGIVE us for our sins! Have MERCY for this NATION....for those who LOVE you and BELIEVE in your WORD.
    We have taken PRAYER out of our schools, homes and communities.  We (as a nation) have murdered innocent babies for which we will stand judgement.  I pray for our President and the leaders of our country that decisions that are made will be guided by you and only you!  HEAR OUR CRY, have MERCY on us!  HEAR the voice of your servants.  We know, those that BELIEVE on you, YOU are with us.
     AMERICA needs you, Lord!  We are NOTHING without you!  You have BLESSED this NATION because we have BLESSED your people of ISRAEL.
    We THANK you Lord for EVERYTHING you have done for this NATION!  Every Blessing, everyday of PROTECTION.  We know you are the author of everything good, not evil!  We cry out to you like never before....I will no longer be silent......TIME IS SHORT!  Convict us, of our wrong and let us STAND and be BOLD for you!
For Lord, you promise in your WORD, you will BLESS those who walk in your ways.  You are GOD and the only GOD of this world.  You sent your only begotten Son, Jesus who died for our sins.
    We will not stop PRAYING for our NATION and our families.  THANK YOU, LORD for every prayer you have answered.  This NATION NEEDS you now like never before  and I will continue to THANK you and PRAISE your HOLY NAME!

BLESSINGS to you and your FAMILY~~~~~Roxie
